Making a name to personalize apps in the startup of the ROM

When I typed in a name in a name for "First" and "Last" and tried to go on, I got a message saying "Unfortunately, Google Account Manager has stopped", but when I didnt type anything for a name, It let me go on.
Nearly thought I couldnt use my tablet because of the error that you can get past lol

Thanks for the feedback! I'll look into this.

1: Does it works on SM-T230 ? (Not NU)
2: Does it have any problems ?
3: Which rom should I use in this thread, there is 2 roms??? (please give link if u answer)
4: Do I need to wipe system , dalvik cache, cache, data, storage (I have sd card) and flash normally?
5: Can I install magisk in that?

I can't download ROM from the provided link.
File: cm-11-20181216-UNOFFICIAL-degaswifi.zip
Then I click "Download", the following message appears:
"OOPS!
no mirrors found."
Any help?

That link wors fine when i downloaded and clean installed it yesterday and just tried that link again and it seems fine.
>>>> EDIT: sorry, i thought you were referring to the original cm-14.1-20180131-UNOFFICIAL-degaswifi.zip but i see im now attempting to download the newer 20181216 one which is downloading just from a mirror in Quebec.

This (the older 20180131) ROM however some issues on my SM-T230NU, its nice that it is quite fast and those samsung built-in navigation buttons work out of the box so there's no redundant onscreen nav set needed (as occurs the Pixelized OS rom). however the big problem is i cannot edit any desktop widgets, OpenLauncher simply wont enable any edit handles to resize or move anything except icons. OpenLauncher crashes any time i click on the "...miscellaneous" item in its Settings panel.

i will try the newer CM11 to see if its any better (i cant post links so its broken up with spaces):

Did you have any luck? I dusted off my old tab 4 and put a new battery in it and want to find a rom that will make it run better. Plan to use it as an e-reader and to surf the web.

Let me know if you got CM11 workding.

Might be dumb question but stupid questions are the ones unasked or so they say. I bought a tab4 today to find its rooted. I would like to try this rom to update it. But don't know the steps to do so. Please someone walk me thru it. Btw it was rooted with king root from what i can tell. Thanks.

I finally decided to put a rom on my stock rooted Tab 4 (SM-T230nu), and was amazed at the amount of debloat (No Samsung/ Google/ apps).

Using the yearly update in the OP, I lamented not having the final update (I'm using cm-11-20181216), and crossed my fingers after reading many were having installation problems.

I wiped everything, and flashed through TWRP 3.3.1. Flashed/ Booted perfectly the first time with no problem.

The first photo displays the rom stats, the second photo shows the date. Installed yesterday and is running fine alongside Xposed (3rd photo). The extra bonus is my security patch moved up two years...hooray?

The rom is great given the age/ unpopularity of the device. Very light on resources and snappy in response to touch input.

Thank You Secretwolf wherever you are!

Howdy, I am confused. Is this android 4.4.4 or 7.1.2?

I just picked up a T230nu from a garage sale for $10 and would like to update it to be usable as a wifi tablet for the kids but a lot of things won't run on kitkat anymore. All my other devices run lineageos 7.1.2 so I would love for this to match.

Is this the best / latest rom for this device?

It is really hard to dig through the roms in this section since there are so many different model numbers that fall under the tab 4 it seems.

This ROM is a design of 7.1.2 but basically still 4.4.4. Even with this ROM, you still won't be able to run certain apps. Samsung has never released 5.0 for this device. And despite speculation, I doubt they ever will. I have been able to use mobdro on it. That's about it. No other streaming apps. The settings menu is the same as 4.4.4. Just an example. Even with all that, I found this to be the best ROM for this obsolete device.

Thanks for the info, so basically it is a glorified mp3 player at this point. Sucks but oh well for the price I paid.

Too bad lineage doesn't work on this device.

lol, yeah I suppose it could dot hat as well.

I wanted to run signal on it (it is what my family uses texts) so that it could be a "home phone" of sorts but they stopped supporting kitkat earlier this year.

Helps

Like what pop ups? give me some examples.

ello sir, have a nice day and apologize if I disturb the day right now.
Yes, I have a Samsung tablet tab 4 T231. Now I want to upgrade to the operating system you provide, I should choose which is best for my computer and if you don't mind, can you help me specify how to install the original SS T231 child room as Operating System The act he is providing is not. Because my English is not good, if you can hope you can help me.

Anyone have an archive of the latest version of this? I've been desperately trying to install the latest version on the original post, but no luck, stuck on the flashy android head overnight. If anyone could link me, that would be awesome, thank you!

    So, the title is styled like a CM port to the T230, with NO mention that it's just a stock mod, it's poor advertising, and it's sad that the only actual port is left to someone who just edits /system/apps/

    Have you read the WHOLE thread? I have also stated about this in PAST comments. I have stated it is JUST stock with CHANGES. So, do you have anymore complaints about ANYTHING that I have stated PREVIOUSLY? So, it is NOT "poor advertising".

    To answer some of the most recent questions in this thread:
    Correct, this is Android 4.4.4 with some CM14 apps, including its launcher.

    Just place a new "bootanimation.zip" in /system/media and (as necessary) set the permissions to rw-r--r-- (chmod 644).

    I'm usings the SecretWolf98 ROMs for many months now, and have not come across any issue. Camera works...
